On a recent trip to Auckland, my friend and I were unable to book appointments at the Chuan Spa in the Langham Hotel where we were staying. After reading TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to try and book at the East Day Spa as an alternative. We were very happy with our decision. We easily made appointments two days out (which was not an option at Chuan) for 90 minute Balinese massages and added on Thai foot massages and Morrocan Oil scalp treatments. Our experience was very good. Friendly staff greeted us with tea, then we moved to the Chill Room for our foot massages. We transferred to private treatment rooms for our body and scalp massages, then returned again to the Chill Room where we were able to stay and relax for as long as we liked. The spa is stylish, relaxing, and very clean; masseuses were skilled, polite, and professional. We appreciated the quiet, tranquil atmosphere. We left feeling relaxed and renewed--and prices were significantly less than those at Chuan. Would definitely return on a future visit to Auckland!

Went to East Day Spa for a Milk and Honey Cocoon Wrap and the Aromatherapy massage. The place itself is nice and tranquil. They provide with you some ea to start and then ask you to fill out a form. I was rather disappointed with the wrap, it felt like it went by too quickly, and there was barely any time to enjoy the wrap itself. The massage was a bit too gentle, though the oil scent I chose was nice. I went with my partner and he did the jet lag massage and requested the strength to be firm, but also said he barely got a massage. Though the facility was nice, I don't think the massage and services are of good enough quality to make it worth the price.

Thank you for your feedback, it helps us to strive toward improving our services and delivery of treatments. We are pleased you found the spa environment tranquil and relaxing, we are well known for great massage therapies, so on this occasion, disappointed the treatments did not meet expectations. I invite you to message me personally with further details so we may improve.

What a Beautiful Day Spa! As soon as I walked in I could feel my body relax immediately. The smells, decor & warm welcome all helped to achieve this. The Therapists were amazing and friendly; my massage & facial were pure bliss.

Being a local Aucklander it made me feel as if I were back on holiday in the East. I would highly recommend to everyone! I know I'll be back any chance I get. Thank you East Day Spa!

Did the seaweed detox and wow, I feel all lively and new! It was a bit of a messy affair, but the therapist explained the whole process ahead of time so there were no surprises. Going back in two weeks for another!

Lovely massages and you get treated like royalty. My Auckland trip treat. Nice way to wind down. I really like the new seating in the welcome area
